Measurement And Installation of Sun Shade Sail
If you are looking for a way to add shade place to outdoor, then our shade sail may be the best solution for you. These beautiful backyard canopies block harmful UV rays while adding elegance to your outdoor areas. But how to measure and install the shade sail?
Before installing the shade sail, be sure to measure your outdoor space correctly and reserve a perimeter 50-60cm around the shaded area of the turnbuckle, which will fix the sail to your roof or other elevated structure. Bear in mind that the shade sail is measured from the edge of its round ring, which is installed on each corner for suspension. In most cases, you will need to purchase a link kit for triangle or rectangular sail.
Make sure the fittings are connected to a structurally sound fixed point, such as the house roof. Rectangular and triangular shade sails are usually installed at an angle to prevent rain from accumulating. However, many residential shade sails are made of HDPE to allow water to pass through. In this case, they can also be laid flat or twisted into a hyperbolic paraboloid. The advantage of twisting is that the shade sail has a larger distribution of surface tension and a stronger tension, so that the sail has a more beautiful shape.
For another bold architectural effect, we can try to install overlapping shade sails, which can expand the shaded area covered by the shade sail without putting too much pressure on a single sail. When installing overlapping sails, please make sure to leave a distance of at least 30cm between them. Otherwise, windy weather may cause the sails to rub against each other and damage the fabric along with the time.
